The freeze has ended.

Tired of playing games that are already in the App Store? Or, are you a developer that can’t wait to release a new update? You’ll be happy to know that iTunes Connect is back online after being shutdown for the holidays.

Although Apple announced its iTunes Connect service would be offline until today, it appears to be online and already accepting app submissions.

This means that new apps can be approved, and existing ones can be updated. Plus, those all important lists of the top selling apps in the App Store will be changing again soon.

App developers can also change holiday sale prices.

Among the offerings we’ve been waiting for are an updated Skype app which will include video conferencing. In addition, TIVO users were promised an iPad app before the end of the year.

Plus, where is the Who Wants To Be A Millionaire 2011 Edition?

Expect new and updated apps in the App Store very soon.
